The New 52 version of Stormwatch is an organization that has protected Earth from major alien threats since the Dark Ages and is under the command of a group called the Shadow Cabinet – a four-member group of Shadow Lords referred to as “the dead”, and represented by an inhuman entity that can negate the groups powers and is aware of their secrets (except for Harry’s) – instead of the United Nations. Rejecting the title of “superheroes”, Stormwatch exist completely in secret and consider themselves professional soldiers; their base is a hijacked Daemonite spaceship, the Eye of the Storm, located in Hyperspace.

After Jim Starlin took over the writing of Stormwatch with #19, the previous New 52 version of Stormwatch was removed from existence along with the events of the previous issues, including the group’s history as a 1000-year-old organization. Apollo and Midnighter were returned to their original costumes and form the core of a new Stormwatch team which also includes the Engineer, Hellstrike, the Weird, and new characters Jenny Soul, the Forecaster, and Force.
